2 Combat Training of The Greyhound

Combat Training of The Greyhound

Combat training of "Patsir" (NATO name "Greyhound") took place in Primorye. It is a Russian combined short to medium range surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery weapon system. It represents the latest air defence technology by using phased-array radars for both target acquisition and tracking. Basically, what I got from explanations people left in
comments, is that a few air defense complexes are being used. Some of them are a larger range and can overcome targets further away. Then if the targets in question still managed to pass through the smaller defense complexes then this Pantsir-Greyhound came into play. Any targets who managed to get past the defense are meant to be met by canons.

Perestroika That Never Hits the Road

When "Perestroika" - a term coined by Mikhail Gorbachev, was a trend in one large country, another "Perestroika" which literary means "rebuilding" was conceived by the engineers of Minsk Auto Factory or MAZ, one of the largest Soviet truck manufacturers. This somehow unusual looking truck is
"Perestroika" itself. You might have already noticed a gap between the truck's cab and the headlights, that is because the truck was not one solid truck but rather a set of modules or blocks that could be conjoined. Let me try to explain what this Perestroika truck was about.

How Russian BTRs Are Being Assembled

Here we get a chance to peek inside the factory that assembles BTRs, Russian military reconnaissance vehicles. It is a military oriented factory, so there is a special controlling unit making sure that you don't capture in your
viewfinder anything they don't want to be seen, however we did get those photos and I find them pretty interesting. The assembly of a BTR starts with a fully pre-made body. It comes from a factory nearby, already painted and
